Re: Set net ban partially lifted next year


The ban for commercials was lifted a few months back, Phil Heatley is probably the worst fisheries minister we have had for a long time. Its a move in the wrong direction and the fishery would suffer, saying that Hectors do not occur in the Sounds is also bullshit, seen them in there myself.

The government can change the law, and courts have to enforce the laws which the government passes. It was just messy legislation which allowed the commercials to begin netting again.
